digit - figure - finger

Who'd be so kind as to help me making the difference between
digit vs figure
digit vs finger ?
I count on a competent and helpful person kind of a Silky or a Jean-Pierre to enlighten me.
Thanks in advance.

  • Well copied. Thanks, Jim.


    Though I wonder whether 'figure' can't sometimes be used to name a written/typed sign, synonym of digit. For instance people say: "the inflation is coming in double figures"; "the quarter results came to six figures".
    On the one hand I read "a three-digit number" but on the other hand "a six-figures number".
